EAST AFRICAN YOUNG MEDIATORS’ FORUM

By / Uncategorized / No Comments

The East African Young Mediators’ Forum (EAYMF) is a space for learning about and engaging with mediation. We explore the purpose and practice of mediation and ways in which we can engage with this forum in the East African Community.

Mediation is a different, positive way of looking at, dealing with and resolving conflict. It is simple but radical. From court cases to work places, communities to corporations, mediation has a lot to offer.

AIM OF YMF

The aim of the EAYMF is to strengthen Resolution Experts links with the young mediators and ADR community and to provide a forum for young professionals– including young lawyers, mediators, young ADR specialists and young in-house counsel, academics and graduate students with an interest in the field to network and to learn for each other about career developments and issues of interest in the field. The EAYFM is for people from all professions and walks of life who are new to, and have an interest in, mediation.

Therefore, it is intended as a platform where young mediators and mediation advocates can contact each other, share knowledge, get in touch with organizations and network with competent mediators and mediation advocates to gain experience through shadowing, assistantships, internships, co-mediations and mentoring programmes.

YMF OBJECTIVES

Our aims and objectives are to:
– Raise awareness of the purpose and the profile of mediation in Tanzania, across all sectors;
– Encourage and contribute to education, training and research into mediation;
– Promote a greater understanding and use of mediation as an effective dispute resolution tool;
– Create and encourage links among our members and other groups and organizations with similar or complementary aims and objectives, in Tanzania and further afield in East Africa;
– Represent our members and contribute to relevant research and consultation on our members’ behalf;
– Understand public and professional conceptions about mediation and develop and influence them appropriately.

YMF EVENTS

The EAYMF will coordinate events through the ADR ACADEMY regularly throughout the year to explore mediation in context, its practice and purpose.

YMF MEMBERSHIP

Members must be under the age of 40.

The registration fee will be Tanzanian Shillings Fifty Thousand (Tshs. 150,000/=) only to register as a EAYMF Associate, and members receive regular information on upcoming conferences and networking events.

To register as a EAYMF Associate, please email us at info@resolutionexperts.co.tz

Registration Fees: Tshs. 150,000 payable upon registration.

First Sino-African arbitration centers set up in Shanghai and Johannesburg
By Sudeshna Sarkar

“Tanzanian Madeline Kimei said CAJAC will offer parties a wider choice of forum. “There is also added value in having this joint initiative in place as knowledge and expertise can be shared between [Chinese] and African dispute resolution practitioners,” she said.

However, the Johannesburg center may not be enough for Africa. Kimei feels there should be a network of strategically placed branches in other African countries for ease of access to the services. But it would be challenging too as Africa, she said, had inadequate legal regimes and infrastructures for efficient international commercial arbitration. “That is why the branching out has to be done strategically,” she suggested.”

The web-based dispute resolution platform is due to launch in September 2015.

The platform can be accessed through www.iResolve.co.tz

Online dispute settlement to go online

Details Published on Tuesday, 14 July 2015 00:26 Written by DAILY NEWS Reporter Hits: 288

TANZANIANS will soon be able to resolve some commercial disputes through the internet, under a system known as iResolve, thus saving unnecessary costs in settling complaints.

The iResolve would simply be accessed via internet where complainants are to file cases and let the company behind the idea to solve the disputes on their behalf.

The Resolution Experts Managing Director, Ms Madeline Kimei, said the companies – especially service providers – would be members of the iResolve and once a complaint is filed it would be channelled to the respective firm for solving.

“There are no charges for the complainants but members will foot the costs,” Ms Madeline, who is the company founder, said, “the idea is to solve whatever dispute to the benefit of both parties.”

The founder, a masters of law graduate, said the service would be ready before this year’s end to bring in a new era of solving dispute through friendly internet protocol.

China seeks deeper legal ties with Africa for not just better trade, but also a more equitable world order
By Sudeshna Sarkar

……………………….This is the basic goal of most African participants. Like Dhokwani, Madeline Kimei, the founder of Resolution Experts, a dispute resolution service firm in Dar es Salaam, hopes to understand the legal framework in China and help adapt to it in Tanzania. “It will create a path to better relations with Chinese enterprises and businesses in Tanzania and Tanzanians in China,” the Tanzanian advocate said.

Kimei also wants to talk about Tanzania’s “investor-friendly and accommodating laws that would encourage the Chinese to invest in Tanzania” and about the Tanzania Investment Center, the single window providing all information for investment promotion and facilitation. In addition, she wants to highlight that Tanzania, the headquarters of the five-member East African Community, can be the gateway for investors into all of East Africa.
